During the past few days I've been trying to get omapdrm to talk to me. Thanks to
Rob's help I finally got things working on 3.4 . Something's still wrong with
the pixel clock, so I can only use low (1280x1024) resolutions. And for 2D acceleration
we'd need a binary blob. But overall, we can completely replace omapfb with omapdrm
and have future proof gfx on OMAP!
Can omapfb and omapdrm co-exist? So that we can use omapfb as frambuffer to have a
framebuffer console when X is not (yet) started or if it does not start anymore for
If you want to give it a try, I have packaged gfx in my home repo (for beagleboard (xM)):
More info on the wiki:
I pushed the relevant changes to the openSUSE-12.2 branch of the SUSE kernel repo. So the
next time we get a kernel submission for Factory / 12.2, it should contain a working
omapdrm driver. Just modprobe it and you're ready to go with a console.
The great thing about it though is that we finally have a working Xorg driver that
doesn't randomly black screen you and which actually support xrandr, so you can
switch resolutions and connections on the fly. To try it out, just use the
xorg-x11-drv-omap package from openSUSE:Factory:ARM. The name is not final yet, so expect
it to change.
I have pushed xf86-video-omap to X11:XOrg. I have merged your xorg-x11-drv-omap spec into
mine and I will push it to factory shortly.
Keep up the great work guys! We're getting closer to a usable 12.2 every single day
